Because we are on of the most popular Geeklists of 2013, I want to give this another try in 2014. Here we go! cool
You can find the 2013 geeklist here: The golden tip about your newly acquired game. Please check out this Geeklist as well to find valuable tips for your own games!

In this list you can post a newly acquired game that you haven't played yet, but plan to play in the near future. Other users can give you suggestions about your first game and give you a small amount of GG. Suggestions can be tips, tricks, lessons learned, strategies, etc.

After you played your first game, you give all the GG donated to you to, what was according to you, the 'golden tip'.

So in short if you have a new game:
* Post the game
* Subscribe to your own list item
* See the suggestions, tips and tricks flowing in
* Play the game
* Reward the best suggestion (golden tip) with all the GG donated to your entry (don't forget this)
* Make clear in your list item, they golden tip has been given and awarded


If you see a game you like on the list:
* Give a good suggestion on playing the game
* Donate some GG to the list entry (don't forget this)
* Wait...
* See if you gave the golden tip
* Possibly earn some GG

This list is suppose to just be fun, so no rules about minimum amount of GG to give, but I assume everyone will just be a good chap
Let see if we can make this work! Thumb this list if you like the idea.

Please note to only post games you haven't played yet, but plan to play in the near future!

Also note this concept only works if you follow the rules and use common courtesy. Please do so.

is really catching I guess.

What are some things I should now before starting to play and will greatly enhance my experience? I can't wait to hear all your great tips and suggestions!

I will throw in a small GG bonus on top of the GG-tips for the best suggestion after I've played the game

Ill add a quick second for you.

New to board gaming (well, havent played many since I was a kid) so just getting used to understanding rules (e.g. last night i tried Resident Evil Deck Building Game: Alliance, not knowing what a deck builder was it was difficult but got there in the end)

My dad is quite keen to try this one being a big batman fan. (I also got him DC Comics Deck-Building Game for xmas)

Ive read the rules and played a dummy game with myself (hope im not cheating here) but found myself forgetting alot of stuff (like the allies abilities), might be because i was playing both batman and villians.

I received the expansion for Christmas from my mother, but I didn't have the base game. Needless to say the base game is on its way and I hope to hit this on the table sometime in the next few weeks.

Should I jump right in with the expansion? What are the key "golden tips" for both games?

I've never participated in a list like this before; it sounds interesting!

This game is set up on our game table right now, waiting for my husband to feel well enough to play We are huge AH fans, so any complexity won't scare us. Any tips would be most welcome...

My husband got me this for Christmas *last* year (2012), and we still haven't played it. I've opened the box, and I think I read the rules last summer, and that's about it.

It's difficult to get him to play board games with me most of the time, and this one has tons of parts and a LOT of rules. Any tips for simplifying the set-up and the rule explanations would be appreciated!

Edit: Also, how did you get your gaming group to play this for the first time, and what kinds of issues came up that I might reduce or avoid in our first play-through?

I got this for Christmas and there's just something about it that intimidates me. I can't explain what it is because I've learned and taught much more complex beasts in the past.

Any help would be much appreciated.

This game has been sitting on the shelf for too long, but I've been weary about having to teach it without having played it myself. Any advice would surely be appreciated. Thanks.

This is the game I most want to play right now, and the last addition I'll put up on the GeekList.

I'm hoping somebody will get some very soon!

Thanks in advance!
